Russia’s rapid decline

Randy Crews/Spokane, Wash.

May 21: Jill Nelson’s cover story hit the nail on the head. Soon Russia will morph into what it was 40 years ago: a medieval country with an atomic bomb.

Adopting against the odds

Kaitlyn Garrett/Canton, Ohio

May 21: I pray the Chung family finds the same level of support and community my parents did when they adopted two boys from Haiti. God is faithful and provides those missing puzzle pieces you didn’t even realize would fit perfectly.

Open dorms

Bill Cate/Ferrysburg, Mich.

May 21: Kim Henderson’s article rang true to me, not because of any college experiences, but because of my Air Force career. Placing healthy young men and women in close proximity to each other usually leads to trouble.

Making a deal with the devil

Doug Perkins/Wilmington, Del.

May 21: Look back to 2000, when President Bill Clinton paved the way for Communist China’s entrance into the World Trade Organization. What began then—with a push from U.S. CEOs and politicians—has finally reached similar naïve and greedy residents in the South Pacific.

Robert Orrick/Red Bluff, Calif.

I am confident that Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare’s “agreement with China with our eyes wide open” is true. I suspect what he sees is the enormous potential for personal enrichment from a new source of graft, which China would choose to ignore.

Luke Holland ticks all the boxes

Rosa Floyd/Fayetteville, Ark.

May 21: I was very disappointed in this interview. It read like a marketing piece for the candidate, and the headline sounded like an endorsement.

The way to peace

Jeremiah Wade/Memphis, Tenn.

May 21: Janie B. Cheaney’s column was a beautiful exposition of the gospel. When she wrote, “He loves us, but He can’t tolerate us,” I had hoped she would end with “apart from being in Christ.” But she did finish by pointing us to the better Word.

Lithium: The energy source of the future

John Torczynski/Albuquerque, N.M.

May 21: Lithium is not an energy source in and of itself. It is an essential component in many batteries, which are energy storage media, not energy sources.

Wyett H. Colclasure II/Salem, Ill.

I’m glad you showed a glimpse of the surface mining required to extract lithium ore. Too many people are unwilling to recognize the environmental impact that imposes. A fair analysis and comparison must include that factor too.

Airport Karen

William M. McCray/Fairborn, Ohio

May 21 : My wife Karen’s name is abused in the secular world, but we did not expect the same from our favorite news magazine. WORLD should avoid sliding into the disrespecting ways of this present culture.

Karen Shore/Newcastle, Calif.

I am dismayed at WORLD’s adoption of the name “Karen” as a pejorative. I’ve made an effort to avoid offense at the silliness of our society, but I am hurt to find my WORLD Magazine piling on. I still love you, though.

Teamwork makes the dream work

Bobbi Donaldson/Thornton, Pa.

May 21: Kevin Martin seems ideally suited for the collaborative editorial model he described in his column. Keep up the good work!


May 21: Plan B is not the abortion pill but can have abortive effects. Women sometimes use Plan B in an attempt to prevent fertilization or implantation of a fertilized egg..
